The New Zealand Greenlipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) is grown exclusively in New Zealand’s clean and pure coastal waters. New Zealand Greenlipped Mussel is so named due to the unique green colour of its shell.
The Greenlipped Mussels farmed for Mountain Red are grown on ropes suspended from platforms on the surface of the ocean. Their growing environment is carefully monitored to ensure that their ocean water is free from pollution and heavy metal contaminants. All product is tested prior to harvest to ensure it meets with our stringent quality standards.
The Greenlipped Mussel is able to naturally obtain fundamental nutrients from phytoplankton (a marine organism found in ocean waters) and a vast array of marine minerals found only in the untainted ocean conditions of New Zealand’s pristine cool waters.
Greenlipped Mussels are grown in New Zealand to meet the global demand for safe, healthy and environmentally sustainable natural health products rich in Omega-3, DHA and EPA.
Once harvested, we quickly cold process the Mussels to ensure all the delicate marine bioactives are maintained and being manufactured to GMP (pharmaceutical grade) standards, you can be guaranteed a product of quality.
Mountain Red Greenlipped Mussel Extract meets the species specific Environmental Codes Of Practice for best industry practices throughout both growing and harvesting to minimise potential effects on the environment.
Independent recognition has been received from international conservation organisation Blue Ocean Institute, who ranked New Zealand Greenshell Mussels as one of the top ‘eco-friendly’ seafoods in the world.
